MPAA Rating: PG-13
EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: May 23, 2003; Rated: PG-13; Length: 96 Minutes; Genres: Comedy, Romance; With: Albert Brooks and Michael Douglas; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Albert Brooks' and Michael Douglas' antic performances -- as the uptight podiatrist father of the bride and the globe-trotting CIA agent father of the groom -- can't save this soggy, sensitive remake of the now-near-classic 1979 comedy. But in the midst of the wilting emotional humidity, Candice Bergen, as Douglas' bitter, over-therapied ex-wife, is refreshing.
